You are required to register for courses during the official course registration period in every semester. You need a valid course registration to attend courses. When you register for a course, you are automatically registered for the exam, eventual resits and the Canvas page for that course. Please find below information on when to register for which courses and how to do so.

Step 0: Enrol on your degree programme in Studielink
Course registration commences each academic year with a request to enrol (or re-enrol) on your degree programme in Studielink. You will need your DigiD to do so. After enrolment it can take up to 48 hours before you can register for courses. You will not be required to pay at this stage.
Step 1: Select your courses
Go to the Course Catalogue, find your degree programme and select the courses you want to follow.
Step 2: Add your chosen courses to the Planner
Go to uva.nl/courseregistration, find your courses and click on ‘Add course’.
Step 3: Check your timetable and select your preferred tutorials
Go to the Planner tab and check your courses’ timetable under ‘Open Timetable’. Select your preferred tutorial groups. Make sure that there is no overlap in your timetable between tutorials, lectures, exams, and resits.
Step 4: Complete the course registration
As soon as the course registration opens: Go to the Planner tab, check the boxes for the tutorials (WG) you wish to follow, click on ‘Register’, then click on ‘OK’. You can always find all your valid course registrations under the ‘Overview of Registrations’ tab.
You are only guaranteed a place in a compulsory course if you registered for it during the official registration period.
If you didn't register for courses in semester 1 2021-2022, then you can register during the late course registration that runs from 31 August 8 A.M. - 10 September 13 P.M..
Course registration is subject to availability. There is always a spot in mandatory courses of the curriculum, sometimes via a waiting list.
To save your timetable showing only the courses you have registered for, you need to do the following:
Are you starting a progamme at UvA Economics and Business for the first time? Then you do not have to register for courses youself. The Student Administration will take care of your course registration.
As of year two (Bachelor) or as of semester two (Master) you are responsible for your course registration. Also register for first-year courses that you must retake.
